Your Embroidered Designs: Hook the Right Design!

Need a replacement for your Dad’s well-worn fishing jacket?  Want to duplicate the left chest embroidered design but you don’t have the design and you can’t contact the original embroiderer? What should you do?

The image may be a stock embroidery design. These designs are sold by design companies and are cheaper to purchase than having a design digitized (converted into stitch format) from artwork. How do you know if you have a stock embroidery design?  Show it to an experienced embroiderer. They’ll have a good idea if that’s the case and if you’re lucky they might know which company sells your particular design. But, since there are thousands of designs that probably won’t be the situation.  What next?  Have your embroiderer suggest sites where you might find your design. Although you may not see your exact design you may locate one that is very close and it will look great on that new fishing jacket!
